Thanks to China's rural vitalization campaign since the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in 2017, residents have adopted grape planting as a new source of income, said Tashi Phuntsok, Party secretary of the village of Nam.

"Now our villagers have mastered the skills of grape planting and winemaking, and they benefit financially from land rent and providing labor," he said.

Yudron, a resident of Nam, said she was pleased with the grape planting project in her village, which has contributed to her income and quality of life.

"By working in the vineyards for years, now we know how to make wine. We drink both barley and grape wine now. We love grape wine more, though, as it is healthier."
